🔗 Twenty three Celsius will give you these forecasts for Saturday Sunday
🔗 and Monday and I read about fifteen minutes online a nice monthly
🔗 and on digital is B.B.C.
🔗 Radio Oxford radio station. Good afternoon I'm Nick.
🔗 See it's five minutes past one now after six Oxford shared businesses were named
🔗 and shamed for not paying the legal national minimum wage.
🔗 How important is it benchmarks for employers to be able to live off what they earn
🔗 about two hundred employees across the U.K.
🔗 Were published by the Business Minister Margot James the largest list yet since the
🔗 scheme was introduced in two thousand and thirteen
🔗 and joining me now is test Lanning head of business development at the Living Wage
🔗 foundation. Jess good afternoon to you. Hello.
🔗 Now first of all just explain the national minimum wage is an important guideline
🔗 but it's not necessarily the same as the living wage especially in areas of high
🔗 rental like Oxford she has so can you just briefly explain the the difference the
🔗 distinction between the two.
🔗 So I mean the national minimum wage including the government's new national living
🔗 wage a statutory right.
🔗 But all businesses have to pay a living wage foundations run the fifteen year
🔗 campaign for a living wage
🔗 and the introduction of a national living wage with the basic success
🔗 but there's unfortunately is still a quite a big gap between what that wages
🔗 and the living wage actually needed
🔗 that people actually need to meet the basic cost of living in the U.K.
🔗 The government statutory rate is based partly on an assessment of affordability
🔗 from foyers and partly on a target approach is only a portion median earnings.
🔗 It's not based on on any social calculation of what people need to live on in the
🔗 living wage is a calculation of what
🔗 that is which includes things like people's housing cost the cost transport
🔗 childcare. Right. And so this is all about the quality of life.
🔗 Yeah I'm never actually living wage. Right.
🔗 Yeah it is a benchmark
🔗 that actually set based on what people would need first a basic decent standard
🔗 and it's about two thousand pounds the a difference for a full time worker than the
🔗 Such a minimum. Right now.
🔗 Each of them is involved we hear range from the head dresser to a mechanics
🔗 workshop only had issues with.
🔗 One employee but in total they owed workers more than eleven a half ounce
🔗 and pounds which which is quite low money is now.
🔗 and I mean the you know the minimum wage is still not enough to live on just was on
🔗 a thing that. OK people think about you know the big things when they talk about.
🔗 Minimum wage or living wage and we talk about rent and bills
🔗 but I guess you know things like petrol Kashyap to get to work equipment
🔗 and then you know I suppose they have to calculate their ideal salary so they can
🔗 have this quality of life.
🔗 Yeah a living wage is a benchmark so you know for many people with bigger families
🔗 or wanting to buy a house
🔗 and then that's where you need to train in progression of changes
🔗 but the independent calculated living wage is based on a process where people of
🔗 the public get together
🔗 and decide what they think is a decent standard of living
🔗 and so include your core things
🔗 but it also includes a few extras like being able to buy your kid a birthday
🔗 present and you know so small things like
🔗 that do add to the quality of people's line right
🔗 but is it difficult for some employers to afford the living wage that has.
🔗 To the living wage is always been targeted employers can afford to pay more
🔗 and we would encourage all employers to do it
🔗 but the government's to actually write the law and everyone has to pay it. Right.
🔗 But is there a case of saying well you know certainly should be higher in areas
🔗 like Oxford share compared to other parts of the country or is that just unfair.
🔗 So I mean there's a higher London right and it's definitely the places
🔗 that have similar issues around housing and things alone similar cost to London
🔗 and in most cases employers can always choose to pay more
🔗 and go above two thousand six hundred choices now signed up to commit to paying
🔗 their injuries a wage
🔗 that meets the basic cost of living includes big big national employers like our
🔗 Kia National Express Unilever
🔗 and we would you know we would encourage many employers as possible to.
🔗 To pay a living wage and where they tend to go even further than a test.
🔗 Thanks for explaining that all
🔗 that set S learning from the Living Wage Foundation thank you very much
🔗 and date B.B.C.

🔗 Olympics was back in Sydney two thousand and you know just.
🔗 Just getting just getting to one just just achieving an Olympic selection
🔗 and then my first limp medal was was a kind of beyond dream come true stuff it was
🔗 you know it's.
🔗 Dreams of one day maybe possibly putting on the kitchen walking in the opening
🔗 ceremony and behind the flag and all those kind of spine tingling moments
🔗 and it all came true in my first lympics.
🔗 To gain two for the fifth time as you know I feel massively lucky must be proud.
🔗 You're not short of interests outside of rowing you've been studying you've had to
🔗 go to another significant qualification you've written an autobiography in the last
🔗 four years
🔗 and you've taken time out as well as your is your passion for the sport been
🔗 something that's been reignited to do differ and the stage.
🔗 No I mean my my passions never do it for my sport I love it
🔗 and I love being part libertine Miller big part national team.
🔗 I think for me the crucial bit was the London Olympics was you know an incredible
🔗 high for me personally but you know in a way for the whole nation
🔗 and I think if I just continued
🔗 that thinking you know it might have been it might be a mistake.
🔗 It might have been I needed to step away to then want to step back as a very
🔗 conscious decision very exciting possibilities and go.
🔗 Yes I want to give my first Games
🔗 and yet I still want to be in Afghanistan want to be in this sport
🔗 and it's made it tough you know having time out does make it tougher as an athlete
🔗 but it definitely you know reignited the drive from the competitive side in the
🔗 spirit in the excitement I had way back when it all began. So I'm glad to time out.
🔗 I'm glad to come back. Yeah I'm forty
🔗 and sometimes getting to the gym can be a bit of a bit of a struggle.
🔗 Physically I can only imagine the mountain
🔗 that you've had to climb to get back to an Olympic level. Absolutely.
🔗 When there was I guess it was two fold
🔗 when I first came back once having two years out or nearly two years out
🔗 and one was you know being a loser athlete than I've ever been who are so.
🔗 I was kind of fighting on on two fronts the search of is it is an age thing them
🔗 struggling with it is I have a time out on the physical side but you know I I to.
🔗 I did very much.
🔗 You know speak to people that you know very valid opinions within my life
🔗 and it wasn't just my family and close friends
🔗 but you know I spoke to our coaches motor team doctors are too busy
🔗 or I spoke to the team manager. You know I said if I come back.
🔗 To be as ambitious and competitive as I've ever been
🔗 and not coming back just as a nice indulgence goes I want to come back fighting at
🔗 the front and I hope I serve after a very honest

🔗 Radio out for that would you holiday in the buff because it appears
🔗 that many of us are losing our British inhibitions
🔗 and opening up to the idea of a nudist holiday.
🔗 I speak to Andrew Well she's from British nature is I'm the U.K.'s organizer for
🔗 nature is Andrea Good afternoon tea
🔗 or afternoons you know is this really becoming popular wait we're all reserved we
🔗 Brits on the way. Well maybe not anymore you know this is really interesting.
🔗 We have to say thanks to Last Minute dot com for doing the research
🔗 that they did and an on the pinning the statistics that we know.
🔗 Are out there bringing this into the mainstream we know that it's growing.
🔗 We know there are a lot more people losing their inhibitions and saying yes.
🔗 Why no it's when I go on holiday I like to relax.
🔗 I don't want to have to follow convention I don't want to have to do what everybody
🔗 else does. I want to relax and and strike out on my own and one of the ways
🔗 that you can do that is to go to nature's beaches and nature's resource.
🔗 I would almost say
🔗 that our greatest recruitment device in British nature is image people
🔗 that come back from a holiday having stumbled across a beach
🔗 and saying wow this is fantastic. Khurana throw throw my bikini away.
🔗 It isn't the weather there is the address. Come on be honest with me.
🔗 Well if you're on holiday. It's different isn't it. But in this country. All right.
🔗 It is a huge challenge for us. I mean here we are in in August and it's a bit.
🔗 You know hit and miss every day you know what the weather's going to be like
🔗 but I think that's the point we have realised
🔗 that we've become rather buttoned up you know
🔗 that Victorian era was a long long time ago now convention
🔗 that says you must always be modest You mustn't be naked with other people.
🔗 You must always cover yourself up people are starting to say why are quite likely
🔗 not to so
🔗 when was the very first time you went on the nature of holiday then Andrew.
🔗 OK our natures holiday was probably later than when I discovered natures
🔗 and I was in my teens when I first saw a nude beach and I thought
🔗 that looks like something that I'd very much like to do so I went back
🔗 when I was in my in my twenty's
🔗 and you know proved to be exactly what I what I thought really enjoyed it.
🔗 Nature's Tala days came fairly soon after that and what you get is
🔗 that lovely you know it's a bit of a cliche to say you don't carry much
🔗 and you suitcase but it's true you get there.
🔗 You take your clothes off
🔗 and you don't need to put them on again until you leave
🔗 and it just brings a really relaxing way of being on holiday
🔗 and a fabulous community of like minded people who feel the same
🔗 when you use the travelling light cart I can't I can't disagree with you have to
🔗 say what kind of places though can people go.
🔗 It's absolutely so varied I mean let's talk about beaches first of all because
🔗 first of all you don't need to go on a nature's holiday to necessarily find a
🔗 nature speeches plenty around the U.K..
🔗 And plenty across Europe and wider and you can go
🔗 and try it with out you know obviously doesn't cost you anything to go to a beach.
🔗 You'll find a lovely relaxed community just stretching out in somebody's thing
🔗 under the sun swimming without a costume is a is a fantastic thing I must ask you
🔗 Nick. Have you skinny dipped I have one see air.
🔗 It was a very strange experience because let's just say the cold water got places
🔗 where I never knew I had places places where you are so not something
🔗 that you wanted to repeat necessarily Well I mean it wasn't it wasn't an enjoyable
🔗 it was just it was just weird but obviously it was it.
🔗 It was that old girlfriends sisters had a pole in our garden so. So we skinny dip.
🔗 You know I think this is the thing there is this a whole barrier to sort of
🔗 everybody being naked amongst other people
🔗 that they're not necessarily in a you know in a marriage with or something
🔗 but actually it's fine and you soon get used to it and it's actually
🔗 that euphoric lovely feeling that we experience Yeah
🔗 but is it just nudist beaches What about if you just want to be sociable you want
🔗 to go shopping. You want to eat out. Yes absolutely.
🔗 There are plenty of nature's resorts all around the world
🔗 and they range from the the wild campsites where there's very little in the way of
🔗 facilities and you really are back to nature right up to the top resorts
🔗 that are our hotels there is even an all inclusive hotel in Mexico.
🔗 You know which which ranks amongst the you know the best hotels in Mexico.
🔗 I should think. Never mind the dress code and everywhere in between.
🔗 So you can go camping.
🔗 You can stay mobile homes you can stay in hotel rooms you can stay in apartments
🔗 some of them are on the beach some other in the countryside some of them on lakes
🔗 and rivers absolutely huge variety in fact it's true to say that over the years
🔗 when I've shown people the list of places they can go they are absolutely amazed at
🔗 how how normal it looks in the sense that you know the type of places that we go
🔗 and take our clothes off are just the same type of places that people go
🔗 and don't you know. Could I ask you a question about the T.V.
🔗 Programs because we've got new dress trunks we've got in a key dating on T.V.
🔗 You know that it.
🔗 Is that a good thing or is
🔗 that a bad thing for nature is for Niger ism I think it's a good thing you know
🔗 what what I'd like to say is
🔗 that we need to see more nudity I mean I'm delighted to be talking to you on the
🔗 radio today it is only because I'm talking about this subject which still attracts
🔗 attention and of course I'm very lucky for that
🔗 but you know it shouldn't in the sense that we're all naked underneath
🔗 and so anywhere where there's nudity in public is a very good thing
🔗 that the bomb the Audi restaurant the pop up restaurant was all about taking things
🔗 right back to the essentials all the food was wrong.
🔗 There was no electric light even the waiters and waitresses had no clothes on.
🔗 It really was tailor is right back to the base is the focus on the flavor of the
🔗 food the naked attraction dating show.
🔗 I don't like the fact that we're sort of suggesting to people
🔗 that the only thing
🔗 that attracts you to a possible make is how they look without their clothes on
🔗 their show. I mean that's just terrible. That really is celebrity culture gone mad.
🔗 You know what happens a personality for example you know but what I would say
🔗 that was really good about that program Nick.
🔗 All the people that we saw were on airbrushed uncensored edited naked bodies
🔗 and that's really good because a lot of people watching
🔗 that program would never have seen as much nudity and realize
🔗 that we are all different.
🔗 I mean this body dysmorphia body problem body image problems are really prevalent
🔗 these days particularly amongst young women
🔗 and it's because they only ever see the airbrushed models in the magazines and
🔗 that it's not normal.
🔗 You know what can people find out more in for about nature isn't there.
🔗 Andrew we can go to B.N. Dot org dot. U.K.
🔗 All sorts of information about places to go around the U.K.
🔗 Plenty of events that we run every year as well.
🔗 Big events where people can come for a weekend or sometimes longer
🔗 and enjoy the company of like minded people and and dive in.
🔗 You know let's let me say see one of the joining a well Andrew Welsh from British
🔗 nature is in the U.K.

🔗 Almost clear water now I have I would eat my hat if I was wearing one.
🔗 We will get about forty people here in the end a lot of people coming through to
🔗 watch the big screen. Yes we could go helium balloons we've got Bunting.
🔗 But all eyes on the big screen.
🔗 We've got supposedly less than ten strokes to go in his abdomen a sip from the
🔗 beginning there is at least two both legs between them and the rest of the field
🔗 but it's all about the fight with silver our boys are in it
🔗 and it's usually the one that I think it's the Italians they've got it.
🔗 I think that Stephanie got it.
🔗 We are approaching the finishing line these indices dominated.
🔗 We're coming up we can see the line and all of the boats in shot the finish line.
🔗 Come on come on and so forth and take a pause and

🔗 So what happened earlier than Little's there was the men's call truthful Scholes
🔗 the final four. That was the first Final up.

🔗 and you know nothing is going quite late late in the day I can say skinful here

🔗 and she summed up life in the English countryside perfectly understood Green was
🔗 but a small village and there were fields the meadows and woods all around it.
🔗 She longed to go alone far into the fields
🔗 and here's the birds singing the brook tinkling
🔗 and the wind rustling through the corn. She had when a child.
🔗 To smell things and touch things warm and flowers
🔗 and grasses understanding days that were no see her drinking at all
🔗 Fantastic images it's all inspired by the village of Frankfort near basted the
🔗 larger the sound joined by local historian Martin Greenwood whose recently
🔗 published the radio candle for grain the story of a lot rise village.
🔗 MARTIN Good afternoon.
🔗 Good afternoon just I mean the book just just just evokes a
🔗 wonderful history just sort of tell us tell us about candle for greed if you will.
🔗 Well the great thing about count of the green is
🔗 that it was written up by for Thompson who is probably the most gifted author of
🔗 that kind particularly having been a child of poverty born in a little hamlet of
🔗 juniper hill there was little money.
🔗 And started writing and eventually got picked up by the Oxford University Press
🔗 and and produced La Crosse to cattle herd towards the end of our life.
🔗 Right so gaggles the grade is obviously based.
🔗 Well is just that teaches but aid eighty's Fring food.
🔗 It is it is Frankford Yes.
🔗 As she said herself about on the early part of Loch rise was very accurate I think
🔗 about her childhood very accurate indeed it's a bit freer in the way she writes
🔗 about Frankfurt but very very clearly is Frankford and many of the characters
🔗 that she produces like Dorcas Lane was because I witnessed the forge.
🔗 They are very real and you know that she's telling the truth about them.
🔗 These But these villages were dotted about all over the county all all over the
🔗 country in that time period
🔗 when they very much so I think the lock for me as a likely story
🔗 and for many others is
🔗 that for Thompson happened to write about the three about Tom to the Hill called us
🔗 heard and and Frankford. And nobody else called written part in quite that way.
🔗 All right. Tell us a bit about Flora Thompson if you will.
🔗 Well she was born in June of a hill which is a little hamlet pretty well everyone
🔗 was an agricultural laborer except for her father who was a stone mason and.
🔗 Had had a very good job
🔗 but originally I think there are indications of perhaps to predict depression a bit
🔗 of drink. So not a very good background for
🔗 but age fourteen she moved over to Frankfurt and worked in the post office.
🔗 Which was a cut above every any one of her generation really so.
🔗 So with that job she would have seen everybody coming
🔗 and going I guess the perfect place our. The very much. The social spot.
🔗 Not only was in the forty's was also the post office.
🔗 So she she grew up very quickly there
🔗 and she was exposed to books for the first time really.
🔗 And this paps you know looking back that's where she began to feel you know the
🔗 urge to write I think so yeah so you think
🔗 that all this information all this you know all these meeting people finding out
🔗 their background stories because
🔗 that you know I guess in the post office in the four G.
🔗 Would stop and have time for a chat as well.
🔗 This was all kind of still stored away very much.
🔗 So she has lovely quotes about storing it all away
🔗 and borrowing much later from the child
🔗 that had been here particularly I think she is pretty
🔗 and the way she writes about the squalor of the squire's wife who of course who
🔗 come into business at the post office or she'd sit behind them in a church
🔗 and comment on how graceful an arse to cry to looking they were published back in
🔗 nineteen forty five.
🔗 I got I guess that was
🔗 that was significant because it was just at the end of the war.
🔗 Really the point was I think that law cries itself we see
🔗 that it's in three parts with one hundred thirty nine the second part over the
🔗 count of the ninety forty one forty three was the the last turn right thank you for
🔗 and then she put it all together
🔗 or Oxford reversed preparative altogether in one hundred forty five and that's
🔗 when it really.
🔗 I dated for sold out the five thousand copies
🔗 and then another fifteen thousand copies will hold almost immediately which will.
🔗 Which is quite you know quite the number for that time I go when it's not quite.
🔗 Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling have changed every purpose for the book of that kind.
🔗 It was very remarkable indeed
🔗 and it's never been out of print which is you know which is incredible.
🔗 It is it is incredible seven hundred years later.
🔗 Yes villages in in Frankfurt proud of this connection.
🔗 Yes I think it's been rather slow to to real take some pride in it.
🔗 I'll take a little bit of credit here because some I did get a plaque finally put
🔗 up to her in the church. And.
🔗 Then of course there was the the films that there's a T.V.
🔗 Series and
🔗 that woke everybody up because these streams of visitors were coming in from every
🔗 society known to man which was not live for me
🔗 and was very nice for the village as well as to where.
🔗 The book is called The Real candlestick grain the story of her as a Lark Rise
🔗 village what what was the inspiration for you to sneer at this take a look at this
🔗 is quite a toss to take on its name and well.
🔗 Yes No I mean I have written some some earlier books.
🔗 I think
🔗 that the the real reason for writing this one was the discovery of this letter
🔗 original letter written by four Thompson and this was found in numb.
🔗 She had obviously written to a lady called Miss Eagle Molly Eagle
🔗 and Molly eagle when she died.
🔗 Her niece who now lives in want of my Friday Curry found the letter in her edition
🔗 of La Crosse to count her out
🔗 and Odyssey she'd written asking you know what is the book about Is it really by
🔗 radical or not
🔗 and Molly eagle was what was I just an amazing legend re character in Oxford she
🔗 would have been interviewed many times here I think she taught
🔗 or Tom said Mary in some John's infant school it's oh it's off the county road
🔗 and legendary Apparently she was very original loved by the children who couldn't
🔗 wait to get back off their lows right so they said the book inspired by
🔗 that letter will be a lot more about the contents of
🔗 that letter as well in just a moment the book is called the real cattle for grain
🔗 the story of a lark Rice village My guest is historian Martin Greenwood
🔗 and we'll chat more with Martin in just a minute here at B.B.C. Radio.
🔗 got news of the women's double sculls final last hour to Poland Granger
🔗 and solemnly got the silver medal don't forget will cross to the Leander club in
🔗 Henley we live in about half an hour's time here at B.B.C.
🔗 Radio logs for this afternoon.
🔗 I'm joined by local historian bashing Graeme Wood who's recently published The real
🔗 candle for grain the story of a lot. Christ village as I as I flick through this.
🔗 I just. I see my old family photos because because because the people.
🔗 The heritage is a village just outside High Wycombe on the road to princes rich
🔗 Brecourt Bratten them and mom and dad are married there they're both buried there.
🔗 I was I was christened there whatever it's just our spiritual home
🔗 and some of the some of the pictures in there in this book I I have exactly the
🔗 same pictures of my well they'd be my great grandparents I guess to they would have
🔗 been farm workers those were the kind of people
🔗 that lived in a village like Frankfurt which of course was the village
🔗 that kind of dreams based on.
🔗 That's right and very much an agricultural community
🔗 or very few who were anything above
🔗 that I mean of course you have the local farmers
🔗 and probably sixty seventy percent of those working were agricultural
🔗 or cultural lated anyway.
🔗 You know you have the head all the people the forge
🔗 and all the horses to be looked after and one of the gardeners
🔗 and such as Well of course but.
🔗 And almost everybody was probably in for employed either by the local farmers
🔗 or the biggest state which was the shells real estate where in the case of.
🔗 Just jelling credible you mention
🔗 that you can also drain is is is based on Frankfurt and Flora Thompson.
🔗 Lives there.
🔗 You said your inspiration for writing the real candle for the Green Book was a was
🔗 a letter that was found in a copy of Flores book just just expand on
🔗 that if you will.
🔗 Yes Well this letter reached me through a lady called Friday courier
🔗 and her aunt was a lady called.
🔗 Molly eagle who was a legendary very eccentric very imaginative teacher for thirty
🔗 seven years the son marries and so John's Infant School of the Kali road
🔗 and I think probably was interviewed many times here.
🔗 And when she died she was the executor I think
🔗 and in the La Crosse copy was this letter written in ninety forty four written to
🔗 Molly and nobody had seen it. Of course and the problem I had.
🔗 Then was what do I do with it and the short
🔗 or long answer seem to be to write a book in the attic through the letter. So what.
🔗 when you first saw small base letter there must be incredibly excitement you must think
🔗 well you know this hasn't been seen for you know for seventy odd years yet it's one
🔗 of those magic moments in their life of any historian particularly because it.
🔗 It really explained to what extent the book was a biography or not
🔗 and the early part was is very biographical of our early childhood where is it's
🔗 rather freer in terms of writing about Frankford
🔗 and called it in print for particularly.
🔗 It's made a little more suburban and they add a few shops and things like that.
🔗 But the characters are very much alike particular lady who lived at the Ford
🔗 because our Whitman and and your investigations as well have been flung far
🔗 and wide. I understand.
🔗 Well yes that again this was an amazing connection really with thumb.
🔗 The people in Australia.
🔗 It really goes back to meeting two Aussies in the in the churchyard
🔗 and it turned out that their family where they bought a family originally.
🔗 Four brothers and emigrated in the eight hundred seventy S.
🔗 and Spread out
🔗 and worked in so this is just a challenge meeting its chance meeting about if you
🔗 will about fifteen years ago.
🔗 Yeah and
🔗 that led to all sort of connections with very enthusiastic historians in Newton
🔗 Queensland basically and much to my surprise I found
🔗 that they actually built Frankfurt for me in Northern Queensland
🔗 and I have a picture of that of the book. Wow So.
🔗 The four brothers were quite extraordinary very successful pioneers
🔗 and think the farm was seen as an almost ideal example of a pioneer House in those
🔗 early days in the struggle so.
🔗 Photographs letters and what have you
🔗 and then one of them the family ended up a term Brigham Young college in in Salt
🔗 Lake City and she married a Wyoming rancher So she's still in the States
🔗 and she's the one who produced a photograph of the letter carrier who.
🔗 Over from Flora
🔗 and the photo shows the letter carrier standing in the back of of my house which is
🔗 I don't I think I think you're the luckiest historian ever Martin because because
🔗 all just seems to fall into place for you with these with these chance meeting in
🔗 churchyards and people having information.
🔗 You know the other side of the world just incredible.
🔗 Yes as as my wife has said this is my last book I think coming back.
🔗 I just want to see no talk for that matter like Holmes and I
🔗 and I won't attempt to yeah I mean all the luck went my way
🔗 or what I thought I was Frankford like now compared to how it would have been in
🔗 Florence day. Well of course it's moved seriously up market now.
🔗 I mean it's it's not agricultural most of the people are on either commuting It's
🔗 now forty two minutes to merit of them from Mr and just as just on the road.
🔗 And many people are busy doing all no computers at home so.
🔗 And some of the property is now hopes of seeing the new money come in.
🔗 I mean serious money buying up the old recruit for instance is a big houses
🔗 and you know changing hands for over a million you know.
🔗 So you know the poor families who used to live there.
🔗 It's very difficult for them to get back in those so the any memories we have a
🔗 florist time there will be through your book months in Greenwood thank you for
🔗 joining us.
